People come to Canada’s Got Talent by air, by car – and some even by pogo stick.

Especially if they are members of the Xpogo Stunt Team, the first act featured Tuesday on this season’s third episode of the Citytv series.

“I never thought I would say these words,” said Lilly Singh after the trio earned a standing ovation from the crowd at the Fallsview Casino, “but I kinda wanna date a pogo-er.” The fit trio flipped and twirled much higher than anyone expected on their new age pogo sticks. It was four yeses all the way.

Next up was a dog act with leaps almost as high as the pogo stick guys. Alexandria Côté from Thetford Mines, QC, took the stage with what looked to me like two beautiful Border Collies/Australian Shepherds. They flew through the air, caught frisbees and generally interacted with her as if they were all acrobats.

“Me and my dog are going to watch this episode over and over and over again,” said Kardinal Offishall. The only judge not wagging her tail was Trish Stratus, a non dog owner who shrugged and said, big deal, she’s done the same thing with her kids. Lilly and Howie nearly rolled over and played dead. Three yesses.
